Dreams was their debut single. It was released on 5th October 1992 and later appeared on the debut album Everybody Else Is Doing It, So Why Can’t We?
A 1990 demo version was released in Ireland only in the summer of that year under their initial band name, The Cranberry Saw Us!
Dolores O’Riordan was one of the most recognisable female voices in rock in the 1990s and in pop history. She was known for her lilting mezzo-soprano voice, her signature yodel, her emphasised use of keening, and her strong Limerick accent. With The Cranberries, she is regarded to have written “some of the most seminal songs in music history”.
The Cranberries sold over 40 million albums worldwide.
